Cruise Like a Local by small boat

KINboat - Cruise Like a Local by small boat

Cruise Like a Local offers a different kind of Amsterdam canal cruise. Choose your own route and decide what you want to see on the cruise. It is as close to being a local as you can get. During the 60-minute cruise, you’ll see all the major sights in Amsterdam and more. Lean back, relax and let the surroundings amaze you. In the summer you can enjoy the sun on your face in the open boat and in the winter you’ll stay warm in the closed and heated boat.

Discover the Amsterdam canals

Because of the smaller size of the boat, it is not only possible to cruise through the main canals like the Prinsengracht and the Herengracht, but also the more narrow canals are accessible like the ones in the Red Light District (routes may vary). The experienced skipper will act as a guide as well and inform you about all the sights you’ll see along the way. Cruise Like a Local also includes two free drinks. Choose between beer, wine or a non-alcoholic drink.
